BIOME By: Samuel Wilkinson

Inspired by the desire to create alternative uses for a smart phone or tablet and the idea of slowing down, designer Samuel Wilkinson created Biome.


This self contained flora terrarium is climate, water, light and nutrient level controlled via your smart phone or tablet. 
Wilkinson calls his prototype creation a "living Tamagotchi" and says that: “The idea promotes 'digital downtime' by finding an alternative use for smart phones and encouraging their owners to consider a slower life. The control and nurturing of a real mini eco-system takes patience and care, contrasting with the immediacy of messaging or tweeting that is so characteristic of the smart phone generation.”

This would make a cool gift for an urban dwelling green thumber.

What a great concept! We should all sit back and enjoy the flowers (or mini ecosystem ;) )

I am having trouble getting the Chia Pet (joke Christmas gift) to sprout, so I would be no good with this.

This is amazing! What a cool concept:) But I really love the design as well, even if it wasn't so hi-tech, I'd still love it.
